Admissions & Tuition
TUITION & REGISTRATION
Students entering in September are enrolled for the full school year of 33 lessons. A registration agreement must be completed for each student and returned to the School with a registration fee of $50.00 before lessons may be started. (Registration for a second student is $25; no fee for additional students). Returning students have an opportunity in June to register for the following school year, and thereby secure preferred time before openings are offered to new students.
Registration reserves your teacher's time for that specific time period each week and obligates the returning student to complete the year of 33 lessons. If the student is new to the School, they may choose to register for just the first semester (17 lessons from Sept - January). Registration obligates the student to complete the entire year of lessons (or be responsible for all remaining payments) or, if the student withdraws for any reason, all remaining fees must be paid until the student is replaced. Tuition fees vary depending on the teacher and length of lesson. There are 3 payment options available:
Total tuition may be paid upon enrollment.
One-half paid at enrollment and the balance in January.
Ten equal installments due September through June. (You will be invoiced monthly.)
Adult students who are not able to commit to a regular, weekly lesson may choose "Option Two." This package of 8 lessons per semester (16 for the entire year), offers more flexibility. Please call for more information.
In the event of seriously overdue accounts, lessons may be suspended until payment is made. No deductions from fees will be made for absences or withdrawal during the year. However, if the student moves away from our teaching area, the client will be released from further tuition.
